No Delay; No tax

    I've read several threads re: NICS delays and FFL transfers and thought I'd add my experience to the body of knowledge at THR. I purchased two pistols through an out of state dealer and had them sent to my local FFL. Last week, before they arrived, I went to my local FFL and purchased a third pistol (they had to order it). I completed the paperwork for all three purchases at that time, and asked about delays due to the number of pistols purchased at one time. The owner said "they don't know how many pistols you've purchased, we don't give them any of that information". I just picked up my pistols today, no muss, no fuss with NICS. I had to re-sign the form, but no calls were placed to NICS today. In addition, they only charged me $25 per pistol for the transfer fee -- no sales tax. Today, life is good!

    They cannot charge you sales tax on something they did not sell. The $25 fee might be taxable, but, in this case, the pistols are not.

    I'm glad you have a respectable shop. Take full advantage of it and give them your business, they deserve it.

    My local shop is huge, but they want to charge $50/transfer and their prices are always $100 more than anywhere else, and that's a conservative estimate.

    If your dealer followed the law, he notified the local BATF office and local law enforcement of the transfer to you of 3 handguns at one time.

    The OP's FFL did not sell the guns. The OP's FFL did not have ownership of the guns. All he did was handle the transfer paperwork. I wonder if this fine point really means anything, should the BATs swoop in.

    The handguns were all processed through the dealer's bound book as acquisitions to the dealer and dispositions to the purchaser. Also, the dealer processed the 4473 along with the NICS check. He is required to report the multiple handgun transfer.

    That is what I was wondering. Thank you for the clarification.

    Next time ask them if they'll charge per transaction, not per gun. There's only one form and one call, after all.
